Conditions Treated by Superior Health Medical
Reproductive care is an expansive field that covers health issues from family planning to menopause. At Superior Health Medical, we treat the following conditions related to women’s health care.
If you’re feeling discomfort or a burning sensation while urinating, you may be experiencing symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI). Dr. Akers provides personalized care plans that include accurately diagnosing UTIs, prescribing effective treatments, and offering practical advice to prevent future occurrences. With our assistance, you can manage UTI symptoms and reclaim your comfort in daily activities.
Navigating menopause looks different for each person. Dr. Akers will evaluate your current symptoms to determine the right treatment for you, so that you can find relief from things like night sweats, hot flashes, chills, sleep issues, and a slowed metabolism.
At Superior Health, we’ll begin by measuring your vital biomarkers to establish a baseline for your health. Dr. Akers can check for progesterone, estradiol, total testosterone, free testosterone, CBC (including DIFF/PLT), and thyroid stimulating hormones. The results can help confirm pregnancy, track menopause, detect hormonal imbalances, and understand the cause of potential reproductive health issues.
Abnormal discharge might be a sign of various health conditions, including bacterial vaginosis or yeast infections. Dr. Akers will evaluate your symptoms, provide an accurate diagnosis, and recommend effective treatments. She will also guide you through preventative care measures, including hygiene practices and lifestyle modifications, to safeguard your vaginal health. Our mission is to empower you with knowledge and treatment, promoting preventative care for long-term well-being.
Birth control is often a part of family planning, as you can choose whether or not to come off birth control or start it based on your own personal preferences. Dr. Akers can recommend or prescribe the right birth control medicine for you, from oral medication to implanted birth control and IUDs.
Whether it’s common infections like chlamydia, gonorrhea or more complex issues, Dr. Akers provides confidential consultation, precise diagnosis, and effective treatments. Beyond immediate care, we empower you with knowledge on preventative strategies, including safe sex practices and regular screenings, to help maintain your sexual health. Our holistic approach blends care, education, and prevention, ensuring your wellbeing is our priority.
If you’re experiencing urinary incontinence, you may feel a sudden extreme urge to urinate or have difficulty holding your bladder when you cough, sneeze, or laugh. Dr. Akers will work with you to develop your pelvic floor muscles and behavioral techniques to mitigate these symptoms so that you can relax throughout your day-to-day.
Absent, painful, or irregular periods can be tied to a number of different issues, from the wrong birth control to menopause, fibroids, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and premenstrual syndrome. Dr. Akers will help diagnose and treat your particular issue, writing a referral to another medical specialist if necessary.
If you are planning for a family, Dr. Akers can review your health history, conduct labwork, and identify your goals for pregnancy and birth. She’ll also refer you to any specialized care you may need, including infertility treatments and genetic screenings.
Dr. Akers has a wide range of medical experience and will refer you to other gynecologists in your area for pap smears, STD testing, mammograms, and pelvic exams as needed. This way, you don’t have to wait to get the labwork you need.
Increasing Importance of Women’s Health Care
Preventative care is one of the hallmarks of good healthcare, but it’s especially important within women’s health and reproductive care.
With consistent screenings and yearly doctor’s visits, you can catch serious issues like breast cancer, cervical cancer, and STDs before they become worse. This kind of preventative care is life-saving and so often overlooked due to busy schedules.
